Prayer

United Methodist Women Prayer Chain
IMG_1132When Fountain Park UMC was built, above the Erie Avenue entrance, “The House of Prayer” was engraved.  We are called to be praying people.

The volunteer Prayer Committee for the United Methodist Women’s group is dedicated to continually encourage our church members to pray for the sick and to intercede on behalf of someone else who needs God’s help.

Therefore let us pray in solitude for our church family as we pray for ourselves.

US Israel FlagsSpecial Prayer Request – Israel
“When you open your hand, you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.” – Psalm 145:16   Please take a moment to pray for impoverished and struggling families in Israel. Pray for the resources they need to make ends meet during difficult times.  Also pray for safety from the threats Israel faces from unfriendly governments & terrorists that either undermine their security or have intentions to bring harm to their country.  We pray that the Biden administration doesn’t turn it’s back on the country of Israel and continues to foster the strong relationship that was developed between Israel and America prior to Mr. Biden taking office.

Warren visitingThe Unrivaled Power of Prayer
We do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  Romans 8:26
We realize that we are energized by the Holy Spirit for prayer; and we know what it is to pray in accordance with the Spirit.

 


The Undetected Sacredness of
Circumstances
We know that all things work together for good to those who love God.  Romans 8:28
The circumstances of a saint’s life are ordained of God.  In the life of a saint there is no such thing as chance.
